Pristine and peaceful, the paintings of Canadian artist Jeremy Browne are a celebration of freedom, nature’s beauty, and man’s relationship to the natural environment. Like Monet’s haystack imagery, which explores the perception of light across various times of the day, seasons and weather conditions, Browne’s paintings create similar visual essays that celebrate his own fascination with the inherent natural beauty found in rustic, rural homesteads enhanced by the glow of sunrise, evening shadows, or moonlight reflections on a snow-covered landscape.
Born in 1977 in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, Browne’s early upbringing imbued him with an inherent love for the simplicity of nature. Sharing his parents’ enjoyment of the outdoors, he spent nearly every weekend of his youth camping in Canada’s national and provincial parks, many of which were situated in the fertile farming areas of central Ontario.

“This was the first barn I had ever seen that had the barn wood painted blue, and that in itself was more than enough to make this one of my favorite paintings.”
